Yesterday (1st May) was the worst day in all my years with Adsense. CPC is in the toilet.

Too late! Mine was Tuesday.


Well, happy belated birthday to you then. Figured I had a one in 365 chance of getting it right. Got to admit, I was close. ;)

It seems that we have a Panda for Adsense.
It's a disaster

my eCPM is usually 1.8 USD
The last 3 days is: 1.8 , 1.56 , 1.39

The CTR is way low and te were talking about 50 000 clicks/day, but it seems that Google is filtering like crazy!

Still doing really good with Adsense but the Panda Bear is stepping on my affiliate pages

My epc has actually risen about 20% in the last 3 days.

Opposite for me - CPC is down 30% over the last few days.

Yep, I'm way up too.

Same, CPC up in last 3 days.

Ditto... CPC up two of the last three days (WAY up), Revenue for the month up 12% over last month, revenue for the past 7 days up 23% over same period last month. For my main site, which deals with sports and outdoor activities, this could be simply a matter of nicer weather. But March (even with all the brouhaha over clicks), April and now May have all been up month-over-month.

I can report happy days past few. Very nice earnings (for this new average) and I wouldn't suggest it's much to do with Panda 4.0. The ads giving me revenue are from a site that didn't have any real traffic upticks. Must be relevance and or ad units.

Today was a case of sticker shock. Seriously? I have this much money so early in the day? My reaction to this was my eyes bulging out of my head. This is something in the past I would assume was the result of click bombing, and thus would be expecting to see it drop massively within 30 minutes. This time, I think it's all good. One site, not affected by Panda either which way. It's the ads.

@MrSavage. I know that feeling. My earnings have been up as much as 7000% YoY since last weekend.
12:10 pm on May 25, 2014 (gmt 0)



Today so far seems pathetic again, RPM is even lower than the bad days of this month. I can only hope that it goes up later during the day. :(

The last couple of months have gone like this for me: first three weeks great with good ctr and cpc to the point of making it look like they would be record months. Then around the 21st of the month the cpc drops down by 50 - 60% making the last 10 days terrible and the whole month a disappointment despite consistent ctr.

But this month takes the biscuit as since the 21st of this month my cpc has dropped by 75% and unless something amazing happens it will be my worst month in about three years.
6:44 pm on May 26, 2014 (gmt 0)



Damn, today's even worse than yesterday! Atleast 70 - 80% drop from average RPM I get. :(

Monday PVs, Clicks and CTR normal but with a horrible EPC from the UK at 68.75% and the USA way down at 42.4%, its lowest of the year, yuck!

Reporting better be delayed because I am having my worst day of the month by far.

Using HMA VPN's I've visited my sites from different countries...

I used Firefox Private mode and Chrome Incognito.

What did I see?

Nice ads on US, disaster in Europe, only Dating ads: China/Thai/Malay/Mature Women etc.

It's a 90% male profile site...

So I've blocked 2 categories: Dating and Weight Loss.
I hate that "rotting banana ad"!

I've also blocked a lot of Download Button Ads, but the list of spammer sites seems to be infinite! I really hate Download button ads! It's a mystery why Google let's them infect the browsers...

Let's be real, GOOG really only cares about the shareholders and bottom line $$$$$

Google just decided to "give" me all my clicks for the day in the last hour. So yes, stats were way behind.
12:22 pm on May 28, 2014 (gmt 0)



last couple of days - it is completely dead!

seems that I have reached my monthly limit and G stepped on the breaks...

WebmasterWorld Senior Member Top Contributors Of The Month



I'm assuming stats are stuck since the only clicks I have are from India, UAE and Lebanon!

What the hell is going on?

I've got some crazy-assed new illogical AdSense home page and an EPC which has totaly collapsed...i.e. 50% of average!

These Plex idiots ought to stop messing with people's heads and livelihoods, wtf are they experimenting with now?

Pretty pathetic past few days. Almost absurd. Yes, enjoying some nice new post Panda 4.0 traffic but revenue wise it has reverted back to how April/May has been.

Wednesday's UK EPC collapsed to the worst of 2014 at 41.9% and dragged down what would otherwise have been an acceptable day.
4:39 pm on May 29, 2014 (gmt 0)



More low CPC for an already low CPC month.
5:13 pm on May 29, 2014 (gmt 0)



The CPC gets lower everyday. Pathetic.
5:13 pm on May 29, 2014 (gmt 0)



Good traffic and good CTRS here, but the CPC has turned sour. Over the years I have always tended to receive 1 clicks on my financial sites. Today they are closer to 0.60. Doesn't just feel like a one-off as well, since the rates have been shrinking for some time now.

I can only summarize my earning in the past few days and today as being DS.

Don't know what knobs they turned, but I'm having the highest earnings day by far in months. Hope it lasts awhile!
